Summary: we bought this computer. I arrived so corrupted we could not use it at all! It was only bombing us with ads when we tried to get on line and do anything. it was so frusterating. We ended up spending $170 and 5 hoours with a technition to get it cleaned up. It wasn't the HP it was the program it came with - totally corruped out of the box!!! I want my $170 back!
Summary: I've had five computers, a Wii, two ipads and 2 kindle fires....ALL of which has had no problem connecting to wifi. When I got this computer, the first thing I tried to do was connect to the internet. When I had problems doing so, I called the tech support and he said he would charge me $100 for "helping me." After spending over an hour on the phone with the person, I got nowhere and just decided to connect the computer to the modem directly via ethernet connection.
Summary: Bought this laptop for my 84 year old mother in law. All she uses it for is games to keep her mind sharp. She loves purple, so we were very excited to surprise her with a purple laptop. The computer is a VERY dark plum color that looks BLACK unless you hold it directly under a bright light. Very disappointed. And her favorite game,solitaire, is not even on this computer. She does not have internet so playing an online version is not an option for her.
Summary: This is the 2nd HP I have bought in 2 days. The first one I liked, but it didn't have an optical drive, so I returned it for this one. I wish I didn't need an optical drive because this one is terrible for the price I paid. The mouse pad & buttons and the keyboard are the main problems. The mouse pad buttons squeak every time I press either of them. The mouse pad is not sensitive at all and doesn't work half the time.
